I walked into the cafe and take the first small table for one I see. Usually Andre's Cafe is full but today there were less than ten people in attendance this morning.
I place my order and turned my attention to my phone. The couple seated directly across from me looked dishuffled and just plain worn out. My ears perked up,when I heard do you think anyone knows or suspects anything. I usually don't listen on peoples conversations but I kinda wanted to know what she meant by that. So I position my self to hear them better.

Be there through bad times,
Be there through good times,

Give them hugs of joy,
Give them a shoulder to cry on,

#Takin' Back My Love

I have been dying bit by bit everyday,  proving my loyality to you,
thousands of dreams breaking deep inside my heart,
I gave up everything I ever owned,
Just to satisfy your needs and see you happy.
Trying so hard, to fulfill your expectations and earn your trust.
but now I wonder, If it was worth it.
If it was correct to give up my hopes and wishes just to be your perfect girl,
I realise how stupid I was to followx you blindly but today I surrender, I give up because  now i realized your never valued my love. Its time to say Goodbye !
You say I am materialistic,
You keep your money, take it all away and
Am takin' back my love.

Это странно, то, как тяжело бывает существовать, когда тебя сражает вечный страх одиночества, и при этом, ты боишься людей. Ты не можешь чисто физически доверять людям, ты только делаешь вид, что доверяешь. Всё так... запутанно. Ты пытаешься выйти из этого состояния, но ты как запуганный котёнок, бежишь как можно дальше от людей и... когда один, жалко-жалко плачешь.
  Печально быть таким и не понимать, как наконец разбить оковы.

For everyone ,their journeys are always unique and special.
When they say it , it is just a part of life.
But that person knows how much dedication it took to choose a path.
Boulders small or big in their own economic senses do block the way.
But they carry on the journey.
Because life is too short and journey is long.👣👣👣👣

we were finally free.
I have held you,

although rivers may flow,
at different speeds,

Walking Away

Some times you feel like walking away from the troubles in life.
But can you actually free yourselves from all the burdens just by turning your back.
It takes courage to face everything that comes your way.
All you need to do is be prepared for the worst, that way you will not have any regrets even if you fail.
The best part  that will be remembered is that you "tried"!

Never be afraid of failures, keep trying
and you will achieve something better!

Staring out into the endless expanse
dreaming of dying stars in supernova
and the silent horror in the vacuum
as the implosion signals an ending
that I watched unfold in slow motion
erupting in an event horizon
until nothing remained
but the cold dark infinite
engulfing everything in its wake
and there is no escape
no course of action but surrender

...am I still dreaming...or have I crossed into the yawning void?

“Because even in Darkness there is Change, for both better or worse.”
For even in darkness we feel serenity, peace, and You are your own blissful companion.

“The light hurts when it shines too bright, it burns our sense of sight.
Thus not all light will show us truth.”

“For it is when we close our eyes that we can genuinely see”

that is why in darkness we walk,
so better we can be.

En su camino se cruzó con quien demostraba ser el escape de su angustia y soledad. Mas estaba lejos de poseer la portada del regalo que alguna vez soñó. Le dejó a la vera del camino pedazos hecho, confiaba en que la vida un regalo de diferente portada le daría. No contaba con que la existencia no es una serie de cumpleaños, con un regalo cada vez.

There is no need to fall
I have had it all.
I have everything to gain.
Just a little bit of pain.

I sit on this chair.
Storm is trying to scare.
It has started to rain.
The thunder is insane.

I love it to the core.
I just want it more.
I am the drenched one
Letting it out until I'm done.

So happily enjoying the storm.

I was afraid to open my window which was closed since long enough. I was comfortable in my own space without any foreign air sprinting inwards. I was afraid, that the dust that covered my table won't look pretty anymore. I was afraid of the change.

And then, a storm broke the glasses of my windows, it rushed in and created a mess. As if it changed everything. But now that every shattered piece of glass was on the floor and I was unwilling to clean it up, somehow I gathered my strength and started cleaning all the mess bit by bit every passing hour.

I got tired and I slept. I had a sound dreamless sleep finally after so long. When...

We are creatures of habit. We stick to our daily routine yet sometimes things don’t end up the way we intend them to. No matter how carefully we plan everything, life still gets in the way. But as the resilient beings that we are, we adjust, we adapt and we compromise. We move forward carrying this heavy load, and then we thrive.

The taste of purple : A short story

I was a kid, rather a chubby kid. I guess about 6 year old. It was first day of school and I was early enough to occupy the first bench. The next day I saw a boy sitting at my place and I told him to sit somewhere else. To me, as a kid, it was MY place. How could someone else take it away from me ?

But he did not listen, he hit me in my stomach. I hit him on his face and that is how we started fighting. But then something happened. His leg slipped and he fell on the floor hitting his head on the table before falling. Moments later there was a clear bump on his forehead and it had turned blue.

She's a beautiful dreamer with eyes like an angel
A body to die for and a mind just like mine.
She keeps all her thoughts and dreams in a journal
The passion she writes with keeps growing with time.
Sometimes her dreams are playful and vivid
Sometimes her thoughts are scary and dark.
I wish I could be there to help and to heal her
And put back together her sad, broken heart.

If she just lets me in and gives me her trust
I'll hold her together and keep her from breaking.
I've already fallen for her beauty and charm
My mind and my body are hers for the taking.

Dear people of the world,

We are all butterflies unable to see our own beauty. Only others can truly see it. If people say you are not beautiful they are the caterpillars who do not see the beauty you posses, only your strangeness in how different you are. That does not mean that your beauty is nonexistent, only that they focus on how you are different and not the beauty and color of your wings.

There are three people standing on the top of a mountain. This mountain overlooks humanity and its entirety. They can see time pass, from the cavemen to the astronauts that went to the moon, to the scientist today curing cancer. One of them looks up at the sky and says: "Breathtaking." The only girl of the three tilts her head up too and sighs lightly. She closes her eyes and searches blindly for a hand of the second man. Their hands intertwine and she guides his body closer to her. Finally the last one of the trio aims his eyes at the sky too. There they are, three people, on the top of a mountain, having the possibility to see humanity and its entirety, yet choosing to look at the sky. They...

THE MYSTERY

That air of intimidation blew me over.

The evening grew duskier. My Roman antique clock tick tocked.

The tenor turned cold. My phone kept ringing like one fire alarm. I ignored.

I ran down the staircase, only to be found alone in my home. I panicked.

There was a letter on the diners table. And it read just what happened above. The same lines written down neatly with no signature. I flipped it over. It was plain. Trembled was I.

I opened the door of my store room. The room was organized, like one cleaned up crime scene. But the pungency was hard to ignore.

I blocked my nose and walked further, into the corner of the room. She was there, waiting for me. Lifeless.

Dear letterists

At first when I was very very young, I was told that a home is a building you live in. A building made of bricks and cement and doors and windows.

So I loved mine with all my heart. Decorated the walls and the windows with little drawings and stuff. But then one day, I had to leave that house.

As I grew older, I realised that a house becomes a home because of the people who live in it. The memories they create there. The walls and the windows and the doors become witnesses to those memories as they are created, remembered and relived over the years.

So I decided to make a human being my home. For some time it was wonderful. But I always slept with one eye open. There w...

There is no synthetic scent that can capture the essence of a flower.
An aromatic formula that can never be duplicated, at best only replicated.
Humans cannot concoct essential ingredients such as a cool breeze, the morning dew, the sun's rays, the flutter of a butterfly's wings, a bee's tiny footprints.
And how absurd is it that I pass these little gifts from God every morning, every afternoon, every evening without taking a moment to stop and appreciate that natural fragrance in the air?
Today I remind myself to be aware of my surroundings,
I remind myself to stop and smell the flowers.

On a ledge
we stand,
a delicate balance
of fall and firm.

A void looms large
An empty canvas
The past paints
The present follows
Is it ever empty ?

Trials and tribulations
Pushing on
a chosen path,
of we run
someone's trajectory.

Validation
becomes primary,
Acceptance
turns necessity,
Are we ever ourself?

Inferior
is what we think and
Let be bullied.
Perpetrators feed
their fill
to next kill.

Of we run,
tears and fears later,
on a given trajectory,
for whom
we never know.

Stop once
from the drop
A spiralling abyss,
Value yourself
You wont fall.

Even
a slip from the edge
Means nothing.
The world moves,
So you stand
on the ledge
balance for yourself
Life depends on it.

Sometimes, you must experience a breakdown in order to break down all of the things that are breaking you down. Once your life feels like a mess with nothing but darkness and rain, you will begin to focus your energy into alleviating the stress and finally healing the pain. @PLECCA

Some people leave in search of the love they do not find within themselves because this kind of self-love cannot be found while trying to love someone else. @PLECCA

I am drawn to the sea
and its salty spray,
my thoughts preserved,
far beyond the shore.
I am lost,
I am found,
with every wave,
the tide,
its pull,
I break,
I bleed,
from the sea I was born,
and to the sea,
I will return,
when I leave.

I long for you.
If you are the fire,
I am a forest of hope,
eagerly awaiting your flame.
Rage like the wind,
let it carry you to me,
so that we may burn together.

It's been more than a week of unending work - hardly any sleep and random munchies for meals. "Don't know how long I can go on like this", I utter at last to my friend, breaking down in sheer exhaustion. It's the middle of the week and none of us have enough time for cranky conversation or consolation, and so we hang up in another couple of minutes. It's been ages since the Sun decided to show all its might - scorching heat and skyrocketing temperatures with no respite in the form of winds! What could possibly be worse than this!

But alas! The last couple days showed just what can be worse: enormous grey clouds playing hide-and-seek with the sun! So now with the heat is the humidity as well ...

I have a long list of things that make me happy and a longer one that don't. But since I'm pretty good at segmenting, my focus remains on all things bright and beautiful. So here are my top seven joys, in that order:

1. Dance: both Indian classical and modern Western
2. Reading: give me a crime thriller and watch my surroundings melt away
3. Chocolates: anything above 55% cocoa content is always welcome
4. Conversations: deep and meaningful ones with a little humour sprinkled across; preferably with my family though, and probably close friends
5. Coffee: a black, sugar free cuppa is all I need to get in the "zone"
6. Writing and Calligraphy: some times content and at others the fonts take my...

Can you tell me this?

Why is it that we strive for freedom from all shackles - mental, financial, psychological - and yet when that freedom is just around the corner, we feel more scared of it than we've ever feared anything else?

Is it just the trepidation aroused by the change that's to come, or is it that we were only in love with the idea of freedom and not freedom itself? For, to be truly free, wouldn't it mean to be rid of all attachments, expectations and dependence? To be able to live as we wish without being burdened by the constructs of society. And are we really ready to be in that state of existence?

We're supposedly social beings, with an inherent urge for association - with p...

#582 - ‘Lost’
 
I walk, without fear, towards the
promise of you. Following every
flower, in bloom, that still carries
your scent.
You always exist in all the places I
cannot reach; they hold on to your
beauty in ways I have only dreamt of
because all that I own are dreams.
Dreams of you.
Dreams of us.
I often find myself overwhelmed by
dreams, hoping one day I will wake,
and you’ll no longer be a dream to me.

The best way to get rid of sadness is through becoming angry at yourself. You must become so angry about losing control over your emotions that you no longer allow everyone and everything around you dictate how you feel. The angrier you become, the faster  your repressed emotions will give you the clarity and strength you need to be happy again. @PLECCA

Love is only love to you if you are able to perceive it as love. Someone can love you with all their heart, but if you think their affection is being given to you out of desperation, you will believe they are simply seeking attention from you. @PLECCA

I have danced with you,
the world paused,
and in that moment,
we were finally free.
I have held you,
but my arms can’t seem to forget,
the way forever feels.
I have loved you,
you have loved me too,
although rivers may flow,
at different speeds,
in the end,
they always return,
to the sea.

Today,
You asked me
something i don't
have an answer to !

I said i would be happy
if you are,
now when you are smiling
I sometimes don't.

Why have i changed ?
does it mean
i no longer care ?
care too much?
or care for more ?

It just means,
i am running scared
of what could happen,

i have stopped believing
that we can be happy,

i keep anticipating
the next crushing pain,

Those,
are the scars,
the remnants of past,
the lesson learnt,
happiness is just a word
peace comes with a price
I ain't the lucky one !

Hyderabad , India

As the distance increases
And the probability of meeting decreases
We realize
'I'll see you soon', isn't just a line
Its an emotion, a confirmation
A hope and sometimes the only the thing
That keeps us together and holds us forever.
Because no matter how long it is
I'll still see you soon Amigo  <3

The Grand Finale

Despite having such adverse conditions like a tightly wound up fist thrust full force in my face, these less than stellar circumstances I’m faced to deal with despite making a reputable and honorable attempt at getting it right, in doing the right thing by putting my best foot forward and staying positive in hopes I’d manifest positive force energy. I find that things certainly haven’t worked out to my heart’s desire and have been so far, less than advantageous.

I’m trying so hard to create the best case scenario, making the best of it with a positive attitude. I’m a little nervous about my current situation and I want so badly to go home but once again due to no one’s faul...

He sat with his eyes closed and his head pointed up, towards the sky. It had been a long night, a cold one to be precise. The sun was finally up, it was time to soak in a bit of light, a tad bit of hope along. He leaned forward on his chair in the balcony, looking between the crammed up buildings to catch a glimpse of the rising sun. He smiled to himself, amused and embarrassed about his own thoughts that pent up like the lone skyscraper in the night. The shine and the sheer magnanimity somehow felt diminished opposite to the rising day.  

‘It wasn’t that big a problem’, he thought to himself as he poured out the egg on to the pan for an omelette.  

‘Let’s make it cheese then!’, he chuckled...

Everything thing evolves , even love.
Carnal and romantic love evolves into  divine love . Love is the force of creation of this universe . The creator's love created the whole world, and we are his children so our love essentially has the same potential. Carnal love produces a human child while evolved or divine love creates divine things. When shah jahan couldn't connect to his wife in the material plane his love evolved, and by it's force of creation gave birth to Taj . We too can harness this force to reach our goals , just start to experience love in a deeper plane. Love your special one's soul instead of their  body and see the magic of creation unfold.

I am about to throw it out
Let it float towards stars and die out.

We could have it all
I gave you my all
But who knew that "all"
Wasn't it just enough?

Like a boxer in a ring
I am trying to defend myself
You hit to slay, doubt I will make it.

Demanding what you refuse to give
Always pretending and hiding
How doesn't it feel to break me down?

With your past clenched in your hand
You are seducing, you are no lover
You are a beast hungry for revenge.

Tear down my heart
Will not make for what
Your ex break within you.

I don't want to fight
I don't want to die
I wanted to be seen.

I am drowning in these murky waters depths,
My lungs burn from the strain of holding my breath.
I need fresh air, but am afraid to cusp the surface's edge.
The hallowed demons of my past,pull at my ankles.
Begging for me to give in.
My arms tred around me,my hands grasping and touching nothing.
The fear growing in my bellies depths.
Blood flows from my nose and drifts around me.
A silent scream escapes my lips.
Traveling up to the surface edge in a bubbles entrapment,only to be lost into the wind.
Its now or never.
Instead of fight or flight, its fight or die.  
Should i fight to hope for another possible wound and possible happiness? Or give into my demons and live a saddened existence w...

  What I see from the window

  A life of love I'm not the recipient of sadly.

  Excitement and adventure I'm excluded from daily.

  Friends & family who go place to place together while I'm here all alone, a nobody!

  Every hope. Every dream. Every wish. Ever desired reminding me they will never be for me.

  Freedom from this personal hell where glass and pane have turned to iron bars and lock with no key.

  What life could be if only I could be free.

  EVERYTHING I WANT LIVES
     ON THE OTHER SIDE OF
     THE WINDOW FROM ME!

        That's what I see...
   looking in or looking out,
        remains the same
              tauntingly!

Months ago the heat squandered me. A long time before Summer ever started. I don't think about it enough, what I've been through and where I'm going. And I think about it too much.

I thought I would spend the rest of my life wasting away in one place with nowhere to go but down. I thought there was nothing for me at all until persistent voices broke down my deafening walls. Then I looked a little bit closer. I realized that I could have anything I put forth the effort for. Why shouldn't I? And what more do I have to do other than breathe to be loved? It's the contract I entered into, being born. As long as I breathe I am loved. As long as I live and after I die to live again.

The first letter goes to myself.

Learn to make it on your own, learn to trust... only yourself.
Learn to love yourself first, and then who deserves it.
Learn to understand, to understand many things that you may not accept.
Learn to observe.
Learn to listen.
And above all, learn not to be ashamed of being who you are.

From myself, to myself.
And also to those who need it.

It's been awhile since I wrote anything of significance in any capacity.  So many years, so many decades I searched for the "others" . Those mythical beings that were in easy possession of an infinite array of weird, magical and unfathomable ideas.  The kind of folks I loved listening to and sharing with until 4 in the morning .
I traveled 48 states, 8 provinces and 3 countries over decades and sought out these unicorns,  these ghosts of the world.

That the sad (but expected) and quite tragic lesson that I learned was that they or you (I suspect you who read this...) are very, very rare.  I cannot count the many times when I started a conversation with someone,  got my hopes up in the exc...

No matter how hard I tried,
I always ended up losing you..
I kept you so close to me;
But you still chose to leave.
I spent my savings on you;
But you never gave a heed.
I slept thinking about you last night;
Wanting to keep you safe,
because you were my only one,
My dearest!
But when I woke up , you were gone, Gone like the wind...

I let you keep my sight together, but you still wandered away everytime.
I never let anybody have you..
I treated you like my own baby;
But you were least bothered to hold on to me or my feelings!!

And there will come a day,
When tears have no place here.
And I fear its arrival, for the
Moment the rain clears and the
Clouds move on, is the second
The sun starts to shine, on a Time
When we are just you and I.

Hello there,
I found this hidden gem when I was looking for a writing app or something or other (can't remember exactly) a few months ago then I got busy and stuck in the rat-races of life these days but isn't that the same with everyone. So it sat there on my phone in a folder that I access quite regularly just collecting dust (so to speak), so today I finally  had some downtime so I finally decided to set up an account and give this app a try.

I am not sure how exactly this really works but the way that I think that it works is that its like talking to the moon and stars in the sky above me when I am missing someone I love who has passed away just hoping that I could hear their voice o...

Look around you. Observe the world that you are living in.

Can you feel the beating of a thousand desperate hearts?

Can you see the fear for tomorrow in the looks of people?

Can you hear the cries of a thousand mothers who are losing their children each day?

Now ask yourself, is this the place where you always want to live?

Is this the place where each child expects to grow up when they open their innocent eyes and see the world for the first time?

Are you able to look in the eyes of those children without the feeling of shame for this reality full of evil, which they have to face?

Is this what we have prepared for them throughout centuries and years?

We cannot deny ...
